  • Taking Back Thomas Jefferson

    The Abbeville Review ^ | March 10, 2015 | James Rutledge Roesch
    Jefferson, a member of the gentry of Old Virginia, was always regarded as one of the best and brightest of his generation, a gentleman of the finest intellect, taste, and manners. Although Jefferson loved and was loyal to the Union, he was a Virginian first and an American second; Virginia, Jefferson avowed, was his “country.” This order of allegiance – State over Union, or “Society” over “the State” – was firmly rooted in the Old South. Accordingly, in the emerging conflict between the North and the South, Jefferson sided with his own country. “It is true that we are completely...

In a joint press conference Monday with Bardstown Police Chief Rick McCubbin about the shooting of John Kennedy Fenwick, 25, over the weekend, Sheriff Mattingly said candidly that they couldn't help but "take notice" of the mishandling of police-involved shooting cases by media outlets...

    Not wanting to court danger, the Boca West Country Club has refused to host the Palm Beach Republican Party's "Lobsterfest" dinner that advertised controversial Islamic critic Geert Wilders as the keynote speaker. Geert was part of the Garland, Texas, cartoon contest that invited participants to draw the Prophet Muhammad. Islamic law prohibits any image of the prophet to ward off idol worship. However, extremists have violently attacked or threatened with death anyone who has published a drawing or depiction of Muhammad over the years. The belief was what prompted extremists to attack the headquarters of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo,...

    A computer virus that tries to avoid detection by making the machine it infects unusable has been found. If Rombertik's evasion techniques are triggered, it deletes key files on a computer, making it constantly restart. Analysts said Rombertik was "unique" among malware samples for resisting capture so aggressively. On Windows machines where it goes unnoticed, the malware steals login data and other confidential information. Endless loop Rombertik typically infected a vulnerable machine after a booby-trapped attachment on a phishing message had been opened, security researchers Ben Baker and Alex Chiu, from Cisco, said in a blogpost.

    A two-star general resigned his command in San Antonio last week after making a racially-charged comment during a lower-ranking officer's disciplinary hearing, the Air Force said Monday. Maj. Gen. Michael Keltz, then commander of the 19th Air Force at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, told an accused officer that he appeared “drunker than 10,000 Indians” in a photo of him and another airman. The Air Force confirmed that Keltz made the remark, which initially was reported in a blog.

    A comment deemed ethnically offensive has ended the 34-year career of an Air Force major general, a decorated combat pilot who oversaw about 32,000 personnel. Air Force officials have not disclosed the specific words that led to the resignation of Maj. Gen. Michael Keltz, commander of 19th Air Force at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, Texas. The comment was made at a public, nonjudicial punishment proceeding, at which a company-grade officer was appealing an Article 15 punishment before Keltz, the convening authority. The hearing was held April 9 in San Antonio. Article 15 hearings are typically held for minor infractions and...

    The Week ^ | April 23, 2015 | Michael Brendan Dougherty
    One of the more contentious ideas to recently emerge from the culture war is that of "safe spaces." We are said to be at risk of social dangers. Sometimes these dangers are labeled denialism (in which someone's identity isn't recognized) or triggering speech (speech that sets off traumatic responses in unwitting listeners). The way some students at elite colleges combat these social dangers is to create, or demand the creation of, safe spaces. And just as often, students demand that their entire campus become a safe space. Hence the wrong kind of speech is re-labeled as violence. The space only...

    Higher education professionals are dismayed at the growing number of students who expect their universities to protect their tender emotions from over-stimulation. If you graduated from college in the previous millennium, you may be unaware that many students now believe that college professors and administrators should protect them from, rather than expose them to, ideas they disagree with, especially ideas that disturb them. Much of the recent debate over the current state of college campuses was spurred by Judith Shulevitz's March 21 op-ed in The New York Times, "In College and Hiding From Scary Ideas."

So what does it tell us about the Oxford University Press that they are banning authors from using words that refer to pigs? Yes, you read that correctly. Oxford UP is prohibiting authors from using the words pig, pork, sausage, or other pig-related words because they are afraid of offending Jewish or Muslim readers who consider pigs and pork to be off-limits for religious reasons.

They also revealed concerns that department leaders would "capitulate to political pressure, allowing erosion of training standards," according to one document. Some of those concerns were not limited to men, researchers...

Four of the cases have already enjoyed successes in FIRE’s favor, and the others continue to wind their way through the court system. FIRE’s early victories in its litigation campaign illustrate that colleges’ limits on free speech are onerous and unconstitutional. But the battle continues.

    New York public-school students caught stealing, doing drugs or even attacking someone can avoid suspension under new “progressive” discipline rules adopted this month. Most likely, they will be sent to a talking circle instead, where they can discuss their feelings. Convinced traditional discipline is racist because blacks are suspended at higher rates than whites, New York City’s Department of Education has in all but the most serious and dangerous offenses replaced out-of-school suspensions with a touchy-feely alternative punishment called “restorative justice,” which isn’t really punishment at all. It’s therapy. “Every reasonable effort must be made to correct student behavior through…restorative...

It showed up in a February 11th Washington Post article, headline: “College sexual assault prevention has unlikely model: U.S. service academies.” Midshipmen—that is, trainee officers—at the U.S. Naval Academy are being broken to the state ideology, Cultural Marxism. We listen in on a class discussion. Spirited debate broke out after the sophomores watched a video that said the “three most destructive words” a boy hears when growing up are “be a man.”

    As a result of succumbing to its own ceaseless indoctrination about the virtues of diversity, the University of Minnesota no longer will include race and other descriptions in crime alerts unless, it says, there is enough detail to aid in an arrest. Well, if a one-armed flying purple people eater conked some kid over the head and stole her smartphone, that might be allowed to be released to the campus population, although five will get you 10 that there is a one-armed flying purple people eater community on campus who will find the release of that information objectionable on the...

  • College Student Banned from Campus for "Looking like Rapist"

    A college student in Oregon has been banned from anywhere on campus that a fellow student is, not because he has done anything wrong, but because he “resembles” the person who raped that student. That means if the student lives in a dorm and the student who was raped is there, he cannot sleep in his own dorm. If she has a class in a room near him, he is not allowed to go to class. Again, this is not because he did anything, but literally because he “looked like the person who had raped her.” The campus, which is...

    Who Killed Comedy?: Liberals, and not by accident by Daniel Clark Since Jon Stewart announced that he will be ending The Daily Show, which has run on Comedy Central for 16 years, even non-liberals have expressed a certain amount of admiration for him, and not completely without reason. Unlike the mainstream late-night hosts, Stewart is forthright about the fact that he’s pitching his liberal ideology, and when he interviews conservatives, he’s a lot more polite to them than David Letterman has ever been. But is he funny? No. Not even close. Just try watching and reading the “highlights” in some...

    A multi-denominational school in Limerick, Ireland profusely apologized for “subjecting” a Muslim pupil to a copy of the recent Charlie Hebdo magazine cover depicting an image of Muhammad apologizing on it. “This picture has caused great insult within the Islam community in Ireland and the world,” said the unnamed mother of the 11-year-old pupil, according to the Irish Times. The pupil’s classmate brought a copy of the French satirical magazine into school, while the class was having a discussion about the French Revolution and free speech. The cover in question was released a week after Muslim terrorists took the lives...

    If you've wondered why so many mainstream media stories about Islamic issues omit important details and draw spurious morally equivalent conclusions, wonder no more. They're doing it on purpose. This was apparently released by the Society of Professional Journalists shortly after the 9/11 attacks: Guidelines for Countering Racial, Ethnic and Religious Profiling. On Oct. 6 at its National Convention in Seattle, the Society of Professional Journalists passed a resolution urging members and fellow journalists to take steps against racial profiling in their coverage of the war on terrorism and to reaffirm their commitment to: — Use language that is informative...

    ‘Inclusive Language Campaign’ debuts at University of Michigan Dozens of posters plastered across the University of Michigan caution students not to say things that might hurt others’ feelings, part of a new “Inclusive Language Campaign” at the state’s flagship public university that cost $16,000 to implement. Words declared unacceptable through the campaign include “crazy,” “insane,” “retarded,” “gay,” “tranny,” “gypped,” “illegal alien,” “fag,” “ghetto” and “raghead.” Phrases such as “I want to die” and “that test raped me” are also verboten. University spokesman Rick Fitzgerald told The College Fix in an email the campaign aims to “address campus climate by helping...

    The United Kingdom, like much of the rest of Western Europe, is in the midst of committing cultural suicide because of their overly tolerant policies towards radical Muslims and the Islamic faith. Due to hate speech legislation, Christians are being persecuted for speaking out against the dangers of radical Islam, resulting in people being arrested or losing their jobs. Apparently, being an outspoken Christian in the U.K. can even get you dropped from your car insurance coverage now too. Rev. Wena Parry recently told the BBC in Wales that she is being treated unfairly and discriminated against by her car...
